Beauty – #WeAreAzureHills

Sue Smith

Scripture Meditation: 

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you,

or the birds of the air, and they will tell you;

or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,

or let the fish of the sea inform you.

Which of all these does not know

that the hand of the Lord has done this?

In His hand is the life of every creature

and the breath of all mankind.”

Job 12:7-10

 

Prayer: 

Father Creator God, You have made an explosion of beauty all around us! You could have made everything You created plain and perfunctory, but You chose to share a vibrant rainbow of colors, a multitude of textures and an abundance of smells all around us. You share natural beauty with us, because You are beautiful. Open our senses and may we have the Holy Spirit to experience You more fully. In the name of the Son,

Amen

 

Reflection Questions:

Why do we get numb to the beauty around us?

When you experience the beauty around you, how do you feel?

How do you see God reflected in the beauty of nature?

 

Action: 

Step outside for several minutes (or look out a window). List 5 things of beauty.

Do this daily.
